From next year there will be a new single council in North Yorkshire, providing all the services you are used to receiving.
The new North Yorkshire Council will replace the seven district and borough councils as well as the county council.

On Thursday 5th May elections will take place to elect 90 new councillors who will represent 89 new divisions. These councillors will serve for five years.
For the first year they will represent the county council for its final year. They will then serve the new single council for its first four years.
These councillors will make decisions on what public services will look like in the future and matters like council tax rates.
